USM looking to build new dorm
HATTIESBURG — Southern Miss is asking the State College Board for the to look into the feasibility of building a 950-bed residence hall on the Hattiesburg campus.
The estimated project would cost $50 million. The project initiative, which is expected to be voted on today, would require the demolition of three existing dorms to make room for the new building.
WDAM reported that Bond Hall East, Vann Hall and Scott Hall were all built in the 1960s. Under the university’s master plan adopted a few years ago, the new residence hall would replace those three and create a student resident corridor from the Thad Cochran Center to the new Century Park Village under construction.
